Dear Felecia
The first thing you need to do is to consult the doctor who oversaw your pregnancy so that he/she can check why you still have protein in the urine. Losing protein in the urine could indicate that you have a problem such as kidney damage. The doctor will have to advise what treatment you require to stop protein losses via the urine. Also ask the doctor to contact the individual who tested your urine for the life insurance to clarify why you did not qualify for insurance cover so that you can get some clarity on this subject.
